I had my hearing test yesterday, 3-8-2021. I knew it would show some loss of hearing in that right ear. I just hope after CK I don't lose it all. The words sounded garbled since last year's test, I missed most. She mentioned 2 types of hearing aids for me. The CROS and the BAHA. Wow, they are pricey, I wonder what kind of warranty they have. $4,000.00 out of pocket. Kaiser does not pay anything. Well, I have no choice but to go for this CK and hope I don't lose my eyesight and hearing in left ear, just right ear. They say 0% chance of eye issues, 0% chance of left ear hearing loss though I have slight tinnitus some days. I've read of people on here talking of eye issues like dry eye, sometimes YEARS after CK procedure. They say 1-2% chance of balance issues or facial paralysis or feeling something crawling on my face. It just sounds horrible. I can just hear this one melodramatic surgeon saying; "Well, Joe, you waited too long, the CK was ineffective, now we have no choice but to do middle-fossa."
